Voltage converter

A voltage converter is a device that converts a specific voltage into a different one, whereby the following distinctions are made depending on the type of input and output voltage (direct current or alternating current):

  • Inverter (DC/AC converter, e. g. for generating mains voltage in vehicles or supplying solar power to the grid)
  • DC/DC converter (e. g. switching controller for DC/DC conversion)
  • Transformers (AC/AC conversion, identical frequency, e. g. for adapting devices to different mains voltages)
  • Switched-mode power supplies (AC/DC conversion)
